About 16,000 homes and businesses lost power at the height of the storms, which dumped more than 7 inches of rain in Granbury and lingered in Dallas and Fort Worth on Monday.
Electric utility Oncor reported more than 8,000 outages in the DFW area. Other outages ranged north to Wichita Falls and south to Waco, which received more than 4 inches of rain Sunday.
